My license is suspended for a DUI in west Virginia but I live in south carolina.
I was arrested for two DUIs in West Virginia before I turned 21. I served my jail sentence and enough time has passed that I can get my license back if I pay my fines, take DUI classes, and have a breathalyzer installed in my vehicle. However, I moved to south carolina before I completed any of these things and the DUI laws are different here. How should I go about getting my license back?
It's likely that the punishment will stay the same, but you contact a lawyer in South Carolina.

1st DUI Nolie Prosequi 2nd won at the motor vehicle hearing. Case is over now Told to play guilty Can I apply again for hearing
I wanted to go to trial because I knew that I would win. Lawyer talked me into pled guilty and I was not given a copy, but I signed some papers. I am a register nursing student and I asked him many times if my case can be expunged if I lost my case, he said yes. On 5/28/ 2015, after signing the paper lawyer gave me a number to call to get information on applying for expunge. As you know their is no expunge on DUI charge, which I didn't know it at the time or I would have went to trial. My case was first at the DUI court in Rock hill, and after my case was over I learned that reason it was moved to York County, General Sessions is because I was charged with 2nd DUI, when my 1st on 2010 was Nolie Prosequi. Discovery video didn't have anything on me, it was only bits hear and their.

Information about getting a special provisional driver's license.
1st DUI charge was dropped. After my 2nd DUI, I received from Department of motor vehicles that I cannot drive for 12 months and cannot get a provisional license. I had filed with office of motor vehicle for hearing and won and I was driving with go anywhere driver's license. I am in process of seeing about filing for PCR. My own attorney destroyed my case. I know I will get what I am asking. Even after I win my case I am assuming I cannot apply to the office of motor vehicle hearing again? I am also assuming that both of my DUI charge will stay in my driving record for so many years even if the case was dismissed and I have to wait 12 months and go through programs before getting my license back? In mean time is their anything I could apply to the court, or to the motor hearing?

Received charge of Habitual Traffic Offender 3rd Offense but NEVER charged OR convicted of a 2nd... Only ever a 1st.
Received a Driving Under Suspension 3rd or subsequent and Habitual 3rd. My question is not about the Driving Under Suspension because I understand and agree with that charge. But not the other. 3 years ago, I was charged and plead to ONE Habitual Traffic Offender but have NEVER been charged or convicted of a Habitual 2nd. The officer told me that he charged me with a 3rd offense due to the Department of Motor Vehicles placing me on HTO status and not a criminal conviction, which is what he was counting as the second offense. Is this legal or can I get this charged dismissed? it seems that this would be penalizing me for a crime I did time and paid a fine for previously or double jeopardy ... Please help
